My Experience with NYX Abu Dhabi Soft Matte Lip Cream
I got a pack of three nude lip creams- Stockholm, London and Abu Dhabi. London and Abu Dhabi look pretty similar however when you apply it you realize that Abu Dhabi is a bit softer color with a pinch of pink. London is a bit darker with a pinch of brown. Stockholm is visibly pinkish nude. All of the shades are great and bring out the vibrant features of your face.
I pair my nude lip creams with smokey eye makeup to get a perfect balanced look. They are also great for a natural makeup look. They have a brilliant satiny matte finish and are much much softer and creamier than most matte finish lip colors. They do dry up your lips but not as much as other matte lip colors. They can last for 6 hours without much fading if you avoid eating or drinking much. It’s super affordable and easily available. It doesn’t have any particular smell and comes with an applicator. The texture is very smooth and glides easily over the lips. It takes around 20 mins to dry up. My suggestion is that you avoid eating or drinking at least 30 mins after applying it.
Overall Performance of NYX Abu Dhabi Soft Matte Lip Cream
Contrary to what it claims, it’s pretty drying. You won’t even realize it until after an hour or so of application. In some cases if you rub your lips hard it might even chip off. This is frankly the only flaw with this lip cream. But you can rectify it by using a chapstick before applying the lip cream. Otherwise it’s perfect. I have all the nude shades and it looks amazing on me. Considering the price and availability it’s a great bargain even comparable to mac and kylie lipkit shades.
Would I recommend?
It’s perfect for beginners and dabblers who wish to explore affordable good quality makeup. This little item has the potential to make you look like a million bucks. Take my word for it and definitely try it. It will exceed your expectation.
